WEEKLY DROP

14 02 2007

Weekly Drop are getting a little like buses; you wait a long time for one to come along, then loads come at the same time!

3 new weekly drop podcasts have been released this week.

have a feeling that you were waiting for this because we were. Finally, WeeklyDrop catches up with J-Money of The J Money Collection, Vehicle Skate Boards & LTD. Listen in as we discuss J Money’s early career and what broken limb made him hone his graphic design skills.

Another internet audio first! Keola Rapoza came from the Fitted Hawaii headquarters on the island of Oahu for his time to shine. We have wanted to hear from these cats for a long time and what better time then at Magic. Ola talks about running the first headwear boutique in the solar system, and why he and his boys fight each other for fun!

Do you remember what you were doing 12 years ago? Some of you listeners were barely conscious when one of the original street wear brands began their reign of terror. For over a decade, our boys over at the 10th Division have been producing some of the illest garments available. Using bold in your face graphics, quality cut & sew, with a twist of that “New York State of Mind”, 10.Deep has become the premier street wear company. So what do you do when you’ve been in the game for that long? Don’t know? We didn’t either… luckily we had a chance to speak to Scott and Josh about it. Listen in!

We ‘PHD’ are awaiting our ‘£1 for Lee Quinones’ mention on the Weekly Drop. Fingers crossed
